Number 2 Chapel Cottages is understood to date back to the 1800's and was originally one of four cottages owned by the neighbouring Baptist Chapel. Two of the four
cottages have been demolished, leaving this pair of semi-detached cottages adjacent to the chapel. The cottage is not listed and has been subject to a comprehensive updating scheme both internally and externally.
A front door opens into the farmhouse style kitchen which forms part of an extension to the original cottage. This room enjoys views over the garden, solid wooden cabinets, oak worktops and space for appliances. Beside the kitchen is a small breakfast room which in turn provides access into the family bathroom. In recent years this room has been overhauled and comprises a roll top style bath, hand wash basin and wc. The room is finished to a high standard with wooden panelling and a chromium towel rail. The last room on the ground floor is the charming sitting room. A cute and cosy room with exposed beams, a feature fireplace with wood-burning stove and patio doors into the garden.
A winding staircase rises beside the fireplace to the first floor. Here are two bedrooms, of which both are good sized double rooms. The second bedroom is linked from the master bedroom and this room has built in wardrobes and also an airing cupboard.
A shared driveway provides access to an off road parking space situated in front of the garden. Further off road non allocated parking is located just across the road. A gate enters into the garden where a winding path leads up to the house. The garden is fully enclosed and is mainly laid to lawn. The garden has a lovely patio area and a number of mature flowers, plants and shrubs.
Stradbroke is a well served village set amidst quiet rolling countryside, offering a range of facilities including; an indoor swimming pool and gym facility, a primary and high school, butchers, grocery store/post office, coffee shop, two pubs and a medical centre.
